The first emotion I felt during this movie was surprise. What was I to expect from a film about a prostitute with narcolepsy? Certainly, I wasn't expecting a comedy. Though Gus Van Sant’s colorful and humorous tale about two hustlers searching for whatever, wherever, proves to be a lot of different things. It’s a funny story where the lead falls asleep whenever anything is about to happen. Where Mike wakes up and who put him there is the basis of how we learn about him. His need for love and acceptance. It’s a story about people on the edge of society, about working the streets. It’s pretty, entertaining, and begs to question the meaning behind it all. If there is any. Is there?
